We stopped off here on a return trip from Southern Spain. Usual Etap standards, the staff are very helpful - Pierre especially directed us to the town centre and recommended restaurants. but there is unusually a charge for their secure car park. Parking on the street outside is free though. The Ibis next door does not have a resaurant but it is only a 5 minute walk into the very pretty centre of St Jean de Luz where there are plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from. We were there in November so a lot was closed but we found the whole experience really nice. Definitely a good one - handy for the motorway as ever!
The hotel staff is very helpful and friendly. The room is spacious (compared to general Ibis standards), impeccably clean and functional. The sea view is unfortunately compromised by the railroad line and a busy road but the hotel has excellent soundproofing. The hotel is in a recently constructed neighborhood so the street address does not show up on GPS making it a bit difficult to find if you are arriving by car. The beach and center of St Jean de Luz is a five minute walk. The buffet breakfast is copious with lots of choice. I recommend this hotel and would return.
Ideal for St Jean De Luz. Easy parking and you can walk to St Jean & the beach.
New bathroom pod excellent.
Usual for Ibis the towels and rather thin and using them PM & AM they do not dry your body.
Two pillows per person would perhaps help you sleep a little better.
The buffet breakfast was very good and the lady in charge replenished the fare regularly. Full marks for breakfast.
